Wonderful views on a clear day. The metal stairs are safe for smaller kids too. There are some rubbish around, but not too much. It’s free to visit.

This is an excellent day trip for locals. The hike is moderate, the views are beautiful. This is a good trip year round. Bring a lunch and eat at the top.
